The Visit, comprised of cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne and vocalist Heather Sita Black, is a musical dialogue that transcends genres and idioms. The duo’s sound is characterized by long, tumultuous compositions combining the structures and instrumentation of chamber music, the intricacy of Middle Eastern and Persian music, and the emotional and rhythmic weight of heavy metal. Having made waves at this year’s Royal Conservatory’s 21C Festival in Toronto, they push forward here with the release of their debut CD, Through Darkness Into Light, recorded and mixed by Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Ohbijou).

This concert witnesses a contrast in cellos: the lighthearted approach of Cecil Taylor & ICP cohort Tristan Honsinger playing with Montreal’s In The Sea and the heavy metal undertones of Ottawa-based up-and-comer Raphael Weinroth Browne, one half of The Visit. Tristan Honsinger returns to the Music Gallery as a featured player in In The Sea, a trio formed by Nicolas Caloia (leader of Montreal’s Ratchet Orchestra) which also includes Josh Zubot. Honsinger started improvising in Montreal more than 40 yearsago, prior to his move to Europe where he’s been at the centre of improvised music activity ever since. His return to Montreal is a homecoming as sorts as well as an introduction to some of the city’s finest players today, some of whom were born after his departure in the ‘70s. Their rapport is obvious, the results a satisfying mixture of musical empathy and creative conflict. Tristan plays with characteristic daring as the group dives into the protean unknown that is the foundation of the best collective improvising.
